Lets help each other get real good playin poker and torture smelly old regulars and tourists. Post in the Shark Forum and get help from Shark Vets, now.
i have watched a lot of the smaller buy ins as you mentioned and have noticed a lot of the bad beats,guess I will go back now and watch some of the higher buy ins and see how that goes.I dont play on the other sites that were mentioned,just AP and there are quite a lot of "suckouts"and bad beats,just sometimes it just seems that the site has to be rigged.
Good post Beverlee, Thanks for telling us how you feel.I could be wrong in your case but heres the deal, IMO. Newer players, bad players or maybe just players that don't understand the game make statements like this.
I'm NOT putting you down, just trying to add my 2 cents, and maybe help you or another newb (not sayin yer a newb, I don't know you). The sites have NO interest (ZERO, none nadda) in changing the RNG (random number generation). They are getting very wealthy (good established sites) by making the games fair.
Poker is a game of luck and skill. Thats just the way it is. How many times have you seen a horrible donk beat skilled pros on TV (wsop, wpt, whatever). They usually get it in bad, then suck out. I hate this saying but "thats poker". They probably sucked out 10-20 other times to make the TV table. Or won 10 coin flips str8. Seen that happen, although I can't win 3 in a row.
This "donk makes good" is a good thing!! When a horrible donk wins a big freeroll he thinks hes good. He then pays off all the good players until hes broke. wash rinse repeat. Same thing happens to semi pros or donks that win a big event. They re-distribute those "ill gotten gains".
Cash players follow them, stalk them and you want them all confident and rich at yer table, if yer good. Please read up on "variance+poker" and understand what happens when you continually get yer $$ in good. It means you will be a winning player.
I can get my ass kicked for 5 days str8 playin low limit NL and get it in good 75% of the time. Don't matter sometimes. I can also suckout and win, although it doesnt happen often cause I usually git it in good. Im not braggin, im getting to me point!!
You need to get it in good most of the time.THEN, it don't matter what happens for one day or one week. You will be a winning playa, and be able to buy mass bling like mister T and wink martindale (best game show host eva). Variance is MUCH higher in MTT. Its way more luck than cash games. I was becoming a decent $20-100 buyin MTT player. Then I found NL cash games. Way less variance, more instant gratification, and I can play when I want.
In tourneys you must sit for 5, 8 or 10 hours. Might be 12 hours a day for 4 days. Thats not fun to me. I like to sit when I want to sit, and play for as long as I feel like. I like my new friend zingbust (Paul) but i'm a poker player...getting up at 10am to play a Cearsars Palace MTT with him is too friggin early. I get up at 2pm, when in poker mode. CASH GAME! I'm in!
Online I can fire up 6 tables and play 550 hands in an hour and call it a night. Thats fun, all with less variance than all you tourney players. Of course, if I hit a big MTT win i will eat all my above words and become a MTT pro, lol. Sorry for the ramble, but it will make a good blog post.
If I do post it watch the blog for a free shark logo tee, beverlee. Keep posting and give me your thoughts if ya want. If this rant didnt help you maybe jiggy will get sumthin outa it.
